Rye Pale Ale with Pedersen Farms hops
A scientific approach to cultivation has led Pedersen Farms to thrive in the Finger Lakes.
With 18 varieties of hops on 20 acres, Rick and Laura Pedersen were the first to grow hops commercially in New York since before World War II. Their Centennial, Mt. Hood and Chinook bring floral and citrus to a spicy and malty-sweet grist.
By promoting regional hop farms — year after year — through the East Coast Hop Project, we hope to accelerate both the supply and the demand for quality, local hops.
A crucial element to this project is the partnership with the University of Maryland we inked last July. Flying Dog funded hop processing equipment and will continue to analyze and evaluate the 24 hop varieties UMD’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources is studying over the next three to five years.
